Yet another sprint burndown issue
According to the sprint burndown report, "only work items which are open and in progress and which have an estimate are included in the calculation". This raised a question when I tried to manually recompute the remaining work.
As of today, our sprint burndown shows we still have around 155 hours of work left.I have to approximate as the dot is between the 140 and 160 hour lines but near the 160. According to the Progress report bar:
And tallying all the defects and tasks in our current sprint:
The phrasing of the report description is confusing so here are my calculated numbers * Work items which are open Number of WI matching filter: 9 Total estimate w/o correction: 241hrs Total estimate w/ correction: 221hrs Total time spent: 121.5 hours Total remaining effort against original estimate: 119.5 Total remaining effort against corrected estimate: 99.5 * Work items which are Number of WI matching filter: 19 Total estimate w/o correction: 273hrs Total estimate w/ correction: 253hrs Total time spent: 121.5 hours Total remaining effort against original estimate: 151.5 Total remaining effort against corrected estimate: 131.5 Based on the approximated value in the Sprint Burndown graph, the second filtering criteria is closer but why was the burndown not considering the corrected estimate in the computation? I am sure nobody has updated any time fields from the time the database snapshots were updated and when I took the sample data I used in the computation. And how do I tie it with the Progress bar report? Anybody care to explain where I possibly used a wrong assumption? Our server is using RTC 1.0.1. ciao!

The sprint burndown report will ignore the estimate value if a correction is specified and will use the corrected value.

Also, can you please try the two report templates attached to the following work item:
